How to Make Venison Jerky In An Oven

How to Make Venison Jerky In An Oven | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas
I love to go deer hunting with my husband. Even on our first hunting trip of the season, we end up with so much Venison, we are always looking for new recipes to make use of our meat. I found this Oven Venison Jerky recipe on Youtube and thought it looked super easy and the ingredients are condiments everyone has in their kitchen anyway so I was ready to try this recipe the moment I saw it.
The directions were really straight forward and it’s definitely the type of cooking that is not an all-hands-on-deck throughout the process. I was able to go through the steps and have plenty of free time in between and the jerky strips looked so funny as I dried them in the oven, I had to take photos to brag to my Husband because I felt like a real Pioneer Woman with my very own smokehouse!
The Oven Venison Jerky tasted absolutely delicious and it is so great to have something that is shelf-stable for the Winter months. They are a fabulous addition to school lunches for the kids and my Husband loves taking them on fishing trips. I highly recommend this delicious recipe.

Here’s the recipe:

  • Venison Jerky (For 2lb of Venison)
  • 1 ½ Tsp. Salt
  • 1 Tsp. Onion salt
  • 1 Tsp. Garlic Salt
  • ¼ Tsp. Black Pepper
  • ¼ Tsp. Red Pepper
  • 1 Tsp. White Pepper
  • ½ Tsp. Meat Tenderizer
  • 1 Tsp. Celery Salt
  • 1 Tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tsp. Kitchen Bouquet
  • 1/3 Cup Water
  • 1/3 Cup BBQ Sauce
  • 1/3 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/3 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 Cup Liquid Smoke
Cut Meat ¼” thick; ¾ to 1” wide, and as long as you like. Mix all ingredients in a large Tupperware bowl, stir well, add meat, and stir. Put the lid on bowl and shake well. With lid on and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours. After 24 hours, squeeze juice from meat, squeezing meat flat. Put a toothpick through 1 end of meat and lay on a plate. Place foil across the bottom of the oven. Hang meat on top racks of the oven by toothpicks. Keep separated and don’t allow the meat to touch. Place rack in the highest elevation of the oven. Turn oven on to absolute lowest heat, leave door open 2-3 inches. (Use wooden trivet or spoon to keep the door cracked.) Check-in 4-5 hours depending on thickness. Some pieces will dry quicker than others.
